The Wish Rider-Book Review w/ Giveaway

                                        The Wish Rider by Barbara Casey
About the book (provided by IRead Book Tours)

Seventeen-year-old Dara Roux and her two best friends, Mackenzie Yarborough and Jennifer Torres, the three collectively referred to as the F.I.G.'s (Females of Intellectual Genius) because each has an intelligence quotient in the genius range, have just returned from Frascati, Italy. It was there that their much loved teacher and mentor, Carolina Lovel, discovered that her birth parents were gypsies, and that she had a connection to the Voynich Manuscript, the most mysterious document in the world.

Now, with graduation from Wood Rose Orphanage and Academy for Young Women behind them, Dara asks her friends to help her locate her birth mother when she learns that she might be living in New York City. Relying on Dara’s gift for speaking and understanding foreign languages, the black and white images that stir musical cadences in Jennifer’s mind, and Mackenzie’s mathematical calculations that normally provide numerical solutions and answers to life’s most difficult questions, the determined young women tirelessly go from one address to another in search of Dara’s mother.

Their determination turns to desperation, however, as they encounter a dark hidden society more dangerous and terrifying than they could have imagined. It is there that
Dara hopes to find out why she was abandoned in a candy store all those years ago.

And I Thought . . . 
This was a charming book about a group of teenage girls with a 
huge bond of friendship.  They work together to solve a mystery. 
Their friendship is one that many of us wish we had.  

This being book 2 of a series I didn't feel a huge need to have read book 1 but I think if I were purchasing I would buy both to have a complete set for the young reader.   This book can be purchased for the young reader with complete faith in it's content as appropriate for all ages.  

I received a copy of The Wish Rider from IRead Book Tours in
